Notes:
The Rion Garden, a 2 1/2 acre garden, grows in a suburb of Dayton. The previous owner maintained foundation plantings, lawns, and geranium beds. The current owners established meandering paths through a series of garden rooms. Some existing stone walls were repaired and expanded to enlarge a paved terrace on the west side of the house and to retain and widen the nearby perennial beds and shrub borders that edges a wooded ravine. A potting shed, topped with the same slate as the house roof, was added on the south side of the property. Groups of shrubs and groves of small trees were planted as a new understory to existing older trees and to define the various garden areas.
Person(s) associated with the property and garden include: Van Ham and Alice Wiltshire (former owners, 1930-1953); Howard E. and Edith Whitaker (former owners, 1954-1959); William E. and Gloria Gordner (former owners, 1960-1989); and Dick Ammon (landscape architect, 1990-present).
